Around this time every year, all the networks start to cast their pilots. While you may think every show that gets developed ends up on the air, you’d be mistaken. The odds of creating a show that actually makes it is very small, and to become a hit show, it’s like winning the lottery. To try and raise the odds of a successful crop of new shows, the networks develop many pilots. In fact, the number is often two or three times what they actually need. That way they can pick the best of the bunch, and the rest are usually never seen or heard from again. Again, even if you hear about a pilot, it doesn’t mean you’ll ever see it.
